A local company semi-finished part of our basement. I liked the plastic interlocking tiles they used for the floors and wanted more to do the rest of the basement. I did a search and found the exact same tiles at Greatmats! I was very pleased with the prompt shipping and excellent packaging. And the tiles themselves are amazing (Flex Tiles)...they will turn your slightly uneven, damp concrete basement floors into attractive, usable space! Just a note...we ordered the Light Parquet two different times and there is a slight color variation between the two batches, so try to order all of the tiles you need at once.

Looks good but have not had the opportunity to put the tile down in the laundry yet.

Overall, I am very pleased with my floor tile and it looks great in my basement. My floor is cracked and uneven, but the tile is flexible enough to cover these flaws with no problem. Although it was fairly easy to install, more detailed installation instructions would have been helpful as I had to learn as I went along. Thus, I would like to offer some installation tips that I learned along the way. 1) Use a rubber mallet (covered with a lint-free cloth to prevent marring) to pound the male tabs into place, 2) Do not rush, as the male tabs break off easily if not started properly, 3) Tap each tile after installation to keep them snug and square 4) The tiles may be cut easily with a fine tooth saw or utility knife, 5) A wood file works well for removing burrs along cut edges and for detailing a curved cut, 5) Use caution when moving furniture as the tile scuffs & scratches easily.
Great product. I installed it myself - 540 square feet. It took about 2 full days to install. I cut the tiles with a small jigsaw.
I feel a lot better knowing my kids are less likely to get hurt falling on these tiles versus ceramic tiles.
Worked great in my small home gym space. I installed directly on top of the concrete and there is a bit of a hollow sound when you walk but for me it is not a big deal.
I used tile flex on my basement floor because every once in a while I would get some water seepage. I am not the handiest guy around but I found it very easy to put down and think it looks terrific.
It is not a quiet floor but that means little. Greatmats also has some material in rolls you can lay down first which takes away all noise. I did not use this because it would only get wet when I again get water. Neither the tiles nor the rolled material require any gluing down.
Pretty darn hard to make an error and I am very pleased.
We are very happy with the tile flex, it is just what we needed for our basement. We did have it professionally installed, not sure it would have been easy for us especially the tiles that needed to be cut. A separate part of out basement had been finished with the Owens Corning basement system. The tile flex in beige is the exact product, now the two parts of our basement have continuity.
This is a truly great basement flooring tile. I installed it in one of my customers basement which had been sealed numerous of times with epoxy's and sealers. This tile not only enhanced the appearance of the basement but it also creates a moisture barrier which showed results immediately. The bottom of these tiles have pegs which allows air to flow underneath of them while at the same time keeping the tile off the floor which means no sub floor is needed. This was a very well thought out product and it is fairly easy to install.
Excellent as usual, great product.
I would and have recommended Greatmats to people. Customer service people was awesome and so very friendly and helpful. Ordering was a breeze! Arrived quickly and in excellent condition. Installation was easy and loved to see the blocks slip into place as we hammered them in....great fit!
Love these tiles! Best tiles for old basement floors!
Easy to install and very nice looking. Goes over uneven floor. Easy to cut. I love these tiles!!!
Excellent product - very easy to install! Used over uneven basement floor and love it!
The tile was very easy to put down. I put down a vapor barrier first to help quiet my foot steps and help lower any moisture. The tile looks very good. My wife was impressed. A happy wife is a happy life! Joann at Greatmats help me with the ordering and set up the shipping which went very smoothly. If I ever need more I will order from Greatmats.
Great floors!!! We re-did our basement with these floors and they are the best thing we ever could have done. They look and feel great the only thing is that we didn't put anything under the tiles as advised to minimize the noise and they are a little loud nothing too much thou.
Def recommend these tiles worth every penny!!!

Fantastic product. Easy to install, great appearance. High utility value.
This is a wonderful product. Great for basements (as it "breathes"), easy to install. Our church had the parsonage basement rehabbed. The contractor pointed out that the basement floor was terribly uneven. It even sloped upwards in the southeast corner. It would be nearly impossible to level. He came up with Tile Flex. The only thing I know now (and this is not a problem with Tile Flex) is that the concrete should have been thoroughly cleaned and sealed before the Tile Flex was laid. The current pastor's husband complains of it being dusty. That dust seems to be from the concrete underneath the Tile Flex.
Now, my first hand knowledge of the product was rehabbing a half bath adjacent to the earlier project. Having it done on the original contract would have put us way over budget. 5 years later I did the project, ordered the matching Tile Flex: it was easy to order, sales personnel and e-mail contact was great! Product was extremely easy to install. Measure twice, cut once. keep track of which way the tabs run.
